Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.

Headed by So You Think You Can Dance veterans Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions Contemporary Ballet has blended classical and modern dance styles from around the world into dazzling routines for more than 15 years. Armed with a repertoire of dozens of custom pieces, Complexions' dancers showcase the expressive possibilities of the human body more effectively than live tattooing competitions. Starting at 6:30 p.m., a preshow discussion with Dwight Rhoden will let audience members grill the rhythm-making maestro on his methods and inspiration. Inside the Heymann Center's sweeping modernist structure, an intimate auditorium's clear sight lines allow guests to watch each leap and bend ripple through the athletic forms onstage and opera glasses to return to their original role as trendy fashion accessory.
